Vivisick is a Thrashcore punk band hailing from Tokyo, Japan. Formed in 1996 by bassist/vocalist Yuki and guitarist Sunao, Vivisick has become fairly prominent in their local scene but remains almost unheard of outside Japan.

History[edit]

Vivisick formed when Yuki and Sunao met and began placing "want ads" in record stores and magazines to find other willing members to start a band. The band soon had difficulty finding permanent members and establishing a good friendship with each other throughout the years due to the lack of propinquity between each other. Vivisick has since settled on a solid lineup, however. They released their first album, Respect and Hate, in 2008.
